Thanks for all the responses on retreat ideas. Keep them coming!
I've been watching some of the It Gets Better videos. They are so touching, moving, sad, happy, and glorious. One of the LA Gay Men's Chorus singing True Colors moved me to tears (as so many of the videos have).
I think for many of us, there is much stored-up grief. Tears always help me let it out.
Enjoy. And weep. And celebrate.
